Management Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Position Description

Médecins du Monde (MDM), a campaigning medical organization dedicated to worldwide solidarity, has been caring for the world’s most vulnerable people for over 30 years. It has continued to expose barriers to healthcare access and has gained long-term gains in health-for-all legislation. Those who work for this non-profit organization do more than just provide care and treatment; they also criticize abuses of human dignity and rights and seek to improve conditions for vulnerable communities. MdM presently operates in 44 countries on all continents, focusing on four main areas: caring for the health of migrants and displaced people, promoting sexual and reproductive health, reducing damage associated with drug use, and responding to emergencies and crises.

Médecins du Monde has been working in Ethiopia since 1986 on a variety of health programs ranging from long-term interventions to emergency response.

MdM France has focused its efforts on projects related to basic access to primary health care (projects centered on rural health facilities and isolated populations), maternal mortality reduction through improved obstetric care quality, promotion of sexual and reproductive health rights, including protection against gender-based violence, provision of Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS), and malnutrition reduction.

Following a time of uncertainty, the mission has lately expanded dramatically. Although the Covid-19 pandemic was a challenge for the teams and the programming, it has expanded in 2020 and 2021 with its current programming in Semera (Afar) and Chinaksen (Oromia), where MdM France leads a consortium with COOPI and MdM Germany, and solid prospects for intervention in some parts of the country. The mission has also changed structure after handing over its initiative in the Somali area to MdM Germany in May 2021. Following the peace deal, the security situation in the Tigray area improved towards the end of 2022, and MdM aims to intervene in Tigray in 2023 to deliver integrated basic healthcare services.
